Greetings,

I've made a few changes to my system and lost the ability to reboot or shutdown, any hints on what I've could mess up to get to this situation?

Thanks.

I also had this some time ago and found that it was caused by consolekit not being started (rc-update add consolekit default).

several things, I think the main thing is that I think I removed consolekit as I have elogind installed. do I need both?

No, certainly not, absolutely only one session manager shall be installed. There's a wiki for elogind: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Elogind

Also, kde-plasma/plasma-meta warns you should more than one installed.

both are installed now, kde-plasma/plasma-meta didn't notified. no change, I'm removing it as I got a regression, when I select the exit part, system freezes.
the main change was moving from -march=zenver1 to =march=native.
will look at the twiki

there is some progress, I've added elogind to rc boot time, now I can reboot/shutdown from lightdm. this means https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Elogind#Service is wrong.
still I cannot shut it down from kde.

thats ok thought.
